Confused. Is this Meadowbrook Rd in Hempstead, or in Merrick/North Merrick? The article states in Hempstead (assuming Village of) with a Nassu Police car pictured.

Hempstead. I guess I should have made a smarter choice with image. Sorry if that was confusing! MG

Just that either way it's close to home. I have two nieces attending Hofstra. They're smart but this could happen to anyone at anyplace.
